HP has made it official that it’s spinning off its PC business and killing Web OS phones and touch pads. HP had acquired Web OS last year in the $1.2 billion purchase of Palm Inc. If you are one of the die-hard Web OS fans, here’s a deal for you. HP is liquidating its Touch Pad (16 GB) for $99. Check out the YouTube video about Hitler’s reaction to the Web OS death, it’s quite funny.
HP is not the only company giving up its mobile software business, Nokia recently gave up MeeGo OS and Symbian OS to work closely with Microsoft. And Google acquired Motorola mobility to defend Android from patent trolls. It’s a hard “mobile” world out there! Well, except for Apple! 😛
